First and foremost I would like to point out that no unicorns were hurt in the making of this product! Now that, that has been cleared up…
The Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar is the Lush product that I get the most excited about purely because of its name alone. Over the years it has been released several times as a Valentine’s Day special. Once upon a time it was not only stripey but also decorated with a sprinkling of stars. The stars have now sadly gone BUT without the stars the Unicorn Horn bubble bar is still one of the prettiest products I have ever used from Lush.
I’m not sure what the connection of unicorns and Valentine’s day is but I’m not going to argue with it featuring in the annual Valentine’s Day range as I look forward to it after a long Winter, it reminds me that Spring is almost here.
I am unicorn mad, I adore them and have done so ever since I was a little girl. The other half even lets us use unicorn bedding once in a while. He’s clearly a keeper.
I just can’t help myself when it comes to unicorns. I just love the idea of a mythical creature living undetected in a beautiful forest filled with wild flowers, a spring and blissful bird song.
Featuring lavender and neroli oil the Unicorn bubble bar has a cheery and relaxing scent.
The smallest amount of Unicorn Horn bubble bar creates mounds and mounds of soft, fluffy and fragrant bubbles.
A lot of people ask me how I use my bubble bars. Do I grate them? (picture above) do I crumble them in my hand under a running tap? do I use a sieve/tea strainer?
My answer is I do all of the above, using any of the methods I have mentioned above always creates a huge amount of silky smooth bubbles. My advice is to do whatever works best for you. There is no right or wrong way to use it, grate, crumble or sieve.
As a recovering(ish) insomniac I always seem to gravitate to the ‘night time’ products, most of the products that I class as night time ones are lavender based, the most iconic one for me being the Twilight bath bomb.
Neroli oil has been scientifically proven to boost the level of serotonin in the brain a.k.a the happy hormone. Not only is the Unicorn Horn product a night time must have, it is also very good to use if you’re feeling a bit down in the dumps. This bubble bar is the perfect mix of floral and citrus-fruit scent.
Beneath the thick, silky lavender and neroli scented bubbles is twinkling, soft-pink bath water. I never, ever use a whole bubble bar for just one bath as I don’t feel you need to, a little chunk of Unicorn Horn goes a very long way.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to help you wind down allowing you to drift off into an easier nights sleep, look no further.
I just love this bubble bar and I really wish it was permanent stock rather than just a Valentine special.
